Imagination Exercise

Imagine you are walking through knee-deep snow in the woods.

It’s Winter & the snow is still falling. 

You are dressed in warm winter clothes; protected from the cold. 

To grandmothers house you go. Alone.

You brought your favorite camera with you to take pictures of the gorgeous scenery surrounding you.

The sun is shining. It’s midday. 

No one else is around.

Silence. 

You breathe & enjoy this moment.

Compare Less. Do more

Sometimes I scroll through social media and find myself comparing myself to famous people who seem to have “made it.”

Yes they have made it to where they are, and that’s perfect, but that’s not where our focus should be.

My focus, your focus, our focus, should remain upon our own lives, our own goals, our own dreams.

When you stop comparing and start focusing and working on improving your own life, life improves. 

It takes time, but it’s worth it.

“Stay in your lane. Comparison kills creativity and joy.”
-Brene Brown

Stay Focused

This world is filled with distractions of all sorts. 

Like a dresser with drawers waiting to be drawn; opened & dove into like a pool…People swim in distractions. Sometimes all day. Sometimes all their lives. 

Which drawer are you choosing? 

Your intentional choices make a difference. (So do your unintentional choices.)

“Don’t pay attention to other people’s minds. Look straight ahead, where nature is leading you, through the things that happen to you through your own actions.”
-Marcus Aurelius

The Artist’s Life

Is a life of Art; painting, singing, dancing, writing, discovering, creating, exploring, dreaming.

These all fall into the category of Art, but so does teaching, cooking, cleaning, traveling, and working wherever you are – if they are worked upon with focused concentration & intentions of Love.

Anyone can be an artist, but only few are.

Where your mind goes, there you will go too…

“Everything you can imagine is real.” 
― Pablo Picasso

Begin Today

How much time do you spend waiting?

Instead of waiting, what do you think could happen if you tried?

Do you even know where you are headed?

Think about a better future. For yourself & for humanity. For this World.

What does it look like?

From here, is where you begin🙏❤️✨

Do The Work

“Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what.”
—Steven Pressfield

What are you waiting for?

Think & figure out your dream

Feel your dream

& take action toward it. 

Now is the time to Do The Work.

Fall Seven Times & Rise Again

“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”
—Proverbs 24:16

You’ve stumbled. You’ve fallen. But you won’t let this keep you down. Not again. Not this time.

You’ve been created on this planet with a purpose. Some people find their purpose & live it out, while others contribute to purpose without knowing.

To find and live your true purpose requires a righteous pursuit. On this path you will fall much more than 7 times, but you will continue to rise and be stronger with each comeback.

You can go through your entire life with your eyes “closed”, or you can open your heart, mind, and soul and find the treasure that it waiting for you.

It’s your choice.

Pray about it.

Dream about it.

Love your fate. 

& Rise again. 

F*ck Your Niche

There’s a whole lotta talk about finding your niche & sticking with that.

I say fuck that. 

You know those pictures that say things like “Discover. Dream. Explore.” Yea those are pretty corny but they have some truth within them. 

To continue discovering, dreaming, and exploring you must not limit yourself to one niche.

Some people, some “experts”, consider people who study multiple subjects now as “crazy” or as having multiple personalities. This is insane to me. Those “experts” are narrow minded and filled with selfish biases and mis-understandings. Fuck “experts”.

For example though, I guess Leonardo da Vinci would be considered mentally ill in today’s “modern world”. Same with Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Aristotle, & the list goes on.

To be great in this world is to do great work – perennial work, and to create perennial matter you must actually discover, dream, and explore a range of subjects. 

“When a great genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign; that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.”
Jonathan Swift 

Carry on with the genius within you. 

Fuck the “experts” and Fuck your niche.

Change Happens Now

Everything is happening right Now.

Transformation is happening in this Moment.

Now is where everything happens.

For example, reflect on yesterday. Everything you did yesterday was happening in the moment. The same is true for today.

Everything is literally happening right Now.

What are you doing Now?
